COMMISSIONER OF ACCOUNTS AND CLERK OF COURT
FEES FOR FILING INVENTORIES AND ACCOUNTINGS

The Commissioner of Accounts office is a user-fee based system. Fees, which are set by the Judicial Council of the Virginia Supreme Court, are based on filings made or hearings conducted.

In addition to fees payable to the Commissioner of Accounts, the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Danville charges fees for filing documents.

These fees are properly expenses of administration and should be paid by the estate. In each case, you should ascertain the amount of both fees before calculating distributions.
